's overwhelming popularity of latino men and women. and i don't include this on the table, but there is a gender gap among the 10 catholics. the two men are less likely to support obama and women but generally speaking the vast majority of latino men are supporting obama. what's driving this is immigration. for latino voters the economy was the first issue most important, but immigration was a close second. roughly one in for latino voters said in the state immigration was their major reason for going to the poll. you can see how that is going to be benefiting barack obama in this election. interestingly while why catholics are more likely to vote for romney overall. they're still a gender gap. respect to the views on abortion, health and human services birth control method, religious freedom and the culture of dependency, it appears the bishops vocal opposition to the health and human services mandate is not something most dashing most catholics from supporting. at least when supplied to catholic hospital or universities. only a slight minority of catholic women and men support the health and h

of targeting key groups like students, women and latino voters. our political team writing one of the most powerful underkurnlt currents of this election is the democratic advantage for the democrats. every poll has found and the bottom line, demography is an advantage for president obama and a challenge for mitt romney. let me bring in the senior political editor, mark murray. mark prior to the poll last week we saw hugely with women. that's closed depending on the polls we've looked at. we continue to see a huge leak with the president with the latino voters. the issue is demographics in the latino community shows up to vote if they support the president. >> that's right. enthusiasm does matter, but in a way look at this election is demography, is destiny. the nbc/"wall street journal" pollsters did something interesting where they merged the data from this summer as well as the two big sur vas in september and measured it with the exit polls from 2008. actually, it showed some erosion for president obama from 2008 with white independents. those folks obama narrowly lost in 2008 and he's
and the president's kept in the race because of latino support in colorado as well. >> let's talk a little bit more, jonathan, about women in colorado and nevada, because the president has gone from double-digit leads to single-digit leads there, obviously still leading among women but you have a lot of attention being paid frankly because of things that people like mourdock has said, the war on women, do you think that will turn around? is the president going to expand his lead again? what's going on with the women vote in these key battleground states? >> that's an interesting question because i've been trying to figure that out as well. i mean, the republicans have handed the democrats in general and the president in particular plenty of material to show the contrast and the differences between the president and governor romney when it comes to women's issues and you remember from i believe it was the second debate when the president made the all-important pivot from talking about choice and women's health to economic issues. talking about how, you know, making contraception available to women i
is interested in the economy, most of the polling shows that latino, asians, who expect to be interested in something different are seeing economy as a top issue. i think as latino and asian voters and other minority voters, what we want to hear about what does this data mean to me, to the bottom line. i'd love to see that happen in the debates. the actual voter. how is the dream going to be accessible to be. >> which is what biden does really, really well. >> you know what's interesting, melissa, stepping back for a minute, part of the problem with the debates and the natural discussion, we tend to agree with what the facts are. we can't agree what the structural issues are. if we can't agree that this number is the number under the deficit or this platform is the platform for taxes, how can you have a substantive debate? >> the republicans have actively attempted to say that numbers can be manipulated. >> sure. >> we had 7, 8% job numbers. i do think if we're going to have -- we have to have agreement about what constitutes evidence. >> that's my point about why i think biden is a much
politics calculation of women's votes and latinos questions. romney will be doing better with everybody. i think you will see poll movement and the narrative will change. we have to wait and see. >> that could be true, mike but why did mitt romney feels he would not deport young voters and allow hem to have visas. you see him tweaking on specific issues that are of terest t hispanic voters and others, you see him changing on policy because he's not addressed issues. >> no, absolutely. >> and that ... it was 70% for obama. i mean you can't win a republican can't win, i don't have to tell you this as a strategist with anything south of 40%. i think mitt romney was 20% -- >> i've been hollering this for three years on the republican party about latinos and there's no doubt romney is moving just like obama had to move issues in his campai. romney's been late to it but i'm for doing it big like he did tonight and more of it. >> rose: i want to get john back in but katty go ahead. >> this is giving obama the benefit of the doubt about it of conversation. the obama campaign -- >> rose: that was
to the latest fox news latino poll 60% of latinos would pick the democratic ticket right now, 30% would choose the republican nominee. meanwhile one columnist explains how governor romney can avoid lights out tonight. he says and this is a quote, mitt romney must make americans understand in the clearest of terms how he'll create jobs. he needs to finally take his bain experience and turn it into a plus. rick sanchez wrote that column for fox news latino. he's also a fox news contributor. great to see you, rib. not only that poll that we just put up on the screen. the "wall street journal" came out with a poll, the president has a 50-point lead among latinos, why is that. >> the first thing is that's just nothing more than a huge opportunity that has been missed. ao eights a big fat fast ball right across the plate and it just seems like governor romney has not been able to hit out of park. here you have a block of voters. a lot of people don't know this. gregg. 34% of hispanics who arrive in the united states consider themselves conservative. that is higher than most americans who live in the

president obama with a commanding lead among latinos. 69% of the poll giving the nod to the president. 21% to mitt romney. however pew says the 77% of latinos who say they're absolutely certain to vote is less than all other registered voters. and the issue for most among latinos,age indication, followed by jobs and the che. >>> in this week's office politics we talk to the stars of our morning crew. joe scarborough and mika brzezinski and you won't be surprised to hear joe make a case for mitt romney or mika thinks romney is a goober. but following the governor's strong first presidential debate performance you might be surprised by joe's assessment of barack obama's chances in the second one. >> i think if he holds his own, i think the economy's improving, the right track/wrong track direction is improving. the way this state by state polls show, americans think the economy is starting to improve the economy is slowly starting to get better. i think that breaks the president's way. i think if he holds his own in the next two debates, i think it's going to be very close, but he's got a b
and more diverse. more hispanic. the population is up by 20% since 2000 to more than 5 million. latinos now account for 21% of the population. president obama's strategy is repeating what he did in 2008. his margin of victory was 142,000 votes. 46,000 more votes than kerry got in 2004. they'll also vote on swing accounts that use to be republican. obama put on six counties that bush carried in 2004. including jefferson county. arapahoe. as jefferson county goes, so goes the nation. again, president bush won in 2004 by 9,000 votes. obama won there by more than 34,000 votes. but in 2010 again with a much tighter race. romney's strategy depends on winning the suburbs as well as driving up margins with social conservatives and active military and veterans in colorado springs and the rural areas of the state and doing well with voters here. the swing county like the state as a whole has become more hispan hispanic. colorado is 18% latino. that's up from 11.8% in 2000. the question is whether they cast ballots this time around. so how do voters in denver's swing suburbs known for being independen
. the early vote, the latino vote, the women vote and what will tip the race? joining me is krystal ball and erin mcpike, reporter for real clear politics. thank you both for joining me. >> thank you, reverend. >> krystal, let's start with the early voting numbers. these are promising right now, at least from the start? >> yeah, very encouraging and you highlighted nevada in particular. they just started early voting. democrats turned out more democratic voters on the first day than they did back in 2008 so signs are looking really good there. it's a slas particular test of the air power versus, you know, the boots on the ground, the classic grassroots and it's excelling in today even though the obama campaign itself has actually outfund raised the romney campaign.raised the romney campaign. despite that monetary difference. >> erin mcpike is in ohio. erin, a new quinnipiac poll, of the voters, president obama got 50% of the vote and romney 39. >> the democrats are very energized by early voting. of course, they won a bunch of court ruling. i because they have won the early vote to conti

% of the vote among latino voters. african-american was like 95-4 or something like that and the poll has shown the african-american vote is rocksolid for the president and the numbers extremely high so lets let's just sort of assume rough parity with last time. but the question was, as you suggested the turnout levels among latino voters and i would add young voters very much questionable and when i have gone on campuses i cannot find a pulse. you saw a registration table registered to voters. there might be a couple of people behind the table to register people and nobody in front of the table registering. there's there is just no pulse there. is it safe to say that a seven-point margin becomes you know, six or five or four? sort of taking turnout down among these two groups? just by necessity this was going to be a lot closer. >> look in 2008, the president had to win this back. a seven-point margin for a democrat is big. that is a historic margin for a democrat. no, think all of us expected this to be a closer race. i think charlie the thing we should look for it now with early voting, we h
to caesar chavez, aid latino icon and founder of the american farm workers and he is doing this in california that is a blue state that you assume he shored up, but when you do something like this, there is a political calculation in this obviously. he needs the latino vote. it does tend to go for the democrat over a republican candidate by more than 2:1. it is a growing voter block and key in states like nevada, virginia, florida, and even north carolina. there is also that goes on. >> before i get to the foreign policy issue which i want to get to considering that's the theme of the day, first i want to get to the debate. he finally has come out publicly or at least in front of the audience that has become public and made fun of his debate performance and did it in front of 6,000 people. how did that go over? it did go over well obviously. he was in front of a ton of supporters. this is the first time and why it is interesting he was talking about his lackluster debate performance. here is what he said, this was last night in l.a. at a fundraiser, a concert before thousan
the same high level of african-american, latino, yo ung people from 2008. >> david axelrod said polls are widely different in the methodologies so to think they are all wrong. but this is a close race. as we have always predicted. >> the race is not over. it can go back and forth 34 times. met romney half's to create the moment of. >> in the past races were the lead was cut or flipped it is roughly 5% and some cases it was the debate that moved the nidal. lou: our congressional correspondent. thank you mike. 1992 in depended candidate ross perot entered the first of october and ended up 19% of the vote. and special prosecutor decided to influence the outcome to take caspar weinberger with the iran contra affair to lead the way for william jefferson clinton. >> this is called art and to be funded it. we will talk about art to and religion and money and politics. two weeks of cover-up of the murder of our ambassador in the be a. is it taking a toll in the polls? next the "a team." and hollywood's brave new world energy independence is not a noble pursuit. but can righteousness be corrup
is robyn wright, former labor secretary and economic's professor and teresa, president and ceo of latino and an msnbc contributor. thank you both for being here tonight. >> thank you, reverend. >> senator reich, let me start with you. you've been writing an article about how skewed is. is the word getting out to voters? >> undoubtedly, the voters are getting a sense that romney is not on their side. it's not just the policies and tax plan that gives the rich a huge benefit, at the same time cutting most of the programs that are for the poor and middle class and medicare, medicaid, and so forth. but it's also side remarks. for example, the videotape of romney saying he doesn't care about or he's not worried about 47% of americans who are pampered and who are not taking responsibility for themselves. it's romney himself. i think in the debates romney has two big problems that he's got to try to overcome. one is mathematics. he's got to show what loophole he's going to close. the second is authenticity. he's got to show that authentically he's someone that cares about average working people
suck. being latino wouldn't win you the election but saying jokingly that you wish you were might actually lose it for you. >> the president needs to go after mitt romney but he can't look like a pit bull on stage. that's a tough order. it's a fine line to walk. the debate will not be the same as it was two weeks ago. the podiums are gone. the candidates will have to look comfortable and welcoming to a room full of undecided voters. mitt romney showed in the last debate he can make the most of his rehearsed lines to connect with regular voters. >> i have had the occasion of meeting people across the country. i was in dayton, ohio, and a woman grabbed my arm and said i've been out of work, can you help me? and a rally in denver, a woman said my husband has had four jobs in three years, part-time jobs, he's lost his most recent job and we have now lost our home. can you help us? and the answer is yes. we can help. but it's going to take a different path. >> and what about those workers in illinois. that story coming up later in the broadcast. does romney feel the same way about them
there are women of color who tend to vote for democratic. even among groups like latinos, latinos are voting democratic them latino males. there are younger and older woman. there are really three generations. they've both republicans and obama has a problem with seniors for some time. if younger people vote, they vote democratic. host: we showed that "washington times "headline where he might not get -- where obama may not get big backing because 38% of voters said it will death in vote which is down from 66% four years ago. guest: feel look at 2010 an off- year elections -- 6.6 million young women who voted in 2008 did not show up in 2010. a 11 million on married women who had voted in 2008 did not show up. we need them back in 2012. host: what are their top issues? we had a poll this morning in the newspaper that showed the most important issue that impact women and abortion topped the list. guest: was flabbergasted -- flabbergasted by that paul. -- i was flabbergasted by that poll. the newest poll showed 47% of women said their top issue is some kind of woman's issue like abortion or bir
that we've got the latino locked up, we've got the women locked up we can then throw latina women over whelmingly the domestic workers under the bus. jerry brown should not have vetoed that bill. it's democrats taking advantage of the fact that right now latinos and women don't feel they can go to the republican party. the sickness in the republican party on these issues is -- jerry brown should be ashamed of himself. >> don't you think that's a broader pattern in the democratic party? >> it could be. >> you have social issues a lot of places are trumping economic issues. even in new york andrew cuomo maybe signed the bill you're describing, but when cuomo wants to shore up his base, he does gaye marriage and when he wants to come to the marriage, this is something economic liberals should be concerned about that social liberalism is sort of the only liberalism that really matters. >> and i'm delighted that van brought jerry brown up. one, i think van is right. the democratic party does take advantage of its constituencies. i would argue it's taken advantage of latinos for a long time.
latinos in 2008. look, this is a problem in this election for republicans, andrea, but a bigger problem in 2016, 2020 and beyond. the hispanic community is obviously a young community, it's a growing community, it's a community that's going to register to vote more in line with their population numbers in years to come. republicans simply cannot lose the hispanic vote by 40, 50 points. they can't even lose it by 20 points. people like jeb bush, marco rubio who you showed earlier they understand that. i think the party needs to have a reckoning with where they are in immigration and courting hispanics. numbers like that, mitt romney maybe can win with a number like that, possibly nationally, but i will tell you in 2016, 2020 and beyond the party nominee will be hard pressed to win losing hispanic business that kind of margin. >> and finally, how big a deal is joe biden saying that the middle class has been buried for the last four years? >> yeah. >> republicans are going to make a big deal out of it. >> and are making a big deal out of it. web video this morning, you played paul ryan's c
